Perth Rotary Club is holding its annual Perth Silent Auction to raise funds for the Cornhill Macmillan Centre at Perth Royal Infirmary.

Many charities benefit from this auction and this year it has been agreed by the organisers that Cornhill Macmillan Centre and the ‘My Name’5 Doddie Foundation’, a charity that supports people living with Motor Neurone Disease, will be the main beneficiaries.

The auction, which closes on Saturday 7 December, is generously supported by Perth business communities who have donated amazing lots.

Dr Claire Douglas, lead consultant in palliative medicine for Perth & Kinross explains, “The population of Perth & Kinross is growing and the palliative needs of people with both cancer and non-cancer illness is also growing.

“To better support patients with palliative care needs and allow more people to stay in their preferred place of care, education on various palliative care issues such as managing difficult symptoms is required for non-specialists.

“Perth Rotary Club and the silent auction have contributed to an education fund for Cornhill over the past few years and this has allowed educational events to be organised and delivered for community staff.”
